This is comparing it to my two Caparisons (one 6 string, one 7 string) and to my USA PRS Custom 24 (though sold that now), so hardly low-end, mass produced guitars. Admittedly, the Waghorn cost a fair bit more than any of these but even so, I never thought I'd encounter a guitar that plays better than my Caparisons, regardless of cost. This thing is superb, it looks elegant, plays beautifully and can go from filthy monster metal tones to chimey, subtle cleans with no trouble at all. I'm not a fan of Periphery personally, but I've loved the Juggernaut since I had one installed on my Caparison WM7, and they work brilliantly on this guitar, they're extremely versatile pickups. I am also extremely pleased with the tone-woods (something I talked with Tom Waghorn at length about), really unique and focused tone, which is wonderful. Plus the quilted maple fretboard... :| The build is fantastic, I said to Tom that something I liked about hand-built guitars is the small imperfections in them. Tom proved me very, very wrong with that though, it's a flawless guitar not a blemish on it. Its quite weighty, given the wood choices, but I've had it on for about 4 hours straight at a rehearsal and it sits comfortably and is immaculately balanced, so no troubles there either! Tom is an absolute gentleman, he's patient when answering questions, responds in a timely way and is always clear in his responses. I live just up the road from his workshop as well, so was able to place this order in person where he was happy to spend time discussing what I wanted from a guitar, and what would work, advice which he maintained throughout the build. If you're thinking about getting a master-built custom guitar, I'd certainly recommend getting a Waghorn. Superb instruments EDIT: I forgot to mention that Tom very kindly installed a Trem-stop in the back for me, so I can block off the trem when I want, should I ever tune this thing down (it's in B standard) without wanting to leave it downtuned.
